  1. Yeah, I get that, what I mean is I would have prefered, like literaly any other solution to the problem, but as the writing of the sequels would have it, it simply couldn't be. If I had been the one calling the shots, I would have had Rey and Kylo join together at the end of The last Jedi and develop a Gray side of the force. this deecision would have made her the supreme leader of the First Order, which would have made it possible for her to try and sort things out more fairly, between the firm and strong leader that Kylo would have been, and her more selfless side. Buuut, it's disney and they would never try that type of risk. I also feel like the whole palpatine reveal would have been actually good if it had been planned from the beginning, but it clearly wasn't and that is imdeed what worsened it.
  2. I think the decision to bring back Palpatine in Star Wars 9 didn't contribute much to the story except making no godamn sense. It felt like the team were running out of ideas and made this cheap "twist" to nostalgia bait people.
  3. Damn, Andrew Yang dropped out of the dems race. I hope most of his supporters move to support Bernie, since he is the most similar candidate (while still being quite different). He still managed to stay an "issues" candidate and brought the right thing in the discussion. I hope for a cabinet position for him, since I beleive that's how we can get good change. It does put nuclear energy in a grim light though, since I don't think it'll ever come back in the discussion as things are currently. Which is a shame as I beleive it is required for a proper "green deal" providing carbon free base load energy. Anyway, I do hope he'll endoorse Bernie now, as the dems need unity this time over anything
  4. The big winners of this election still are the greens who nearly doubled their seats (they were leading on a fourth circonscription but fell behind) and the bloc who actually won 22 seats. Conservatives faired surprisingly well for a party lead by someone lacking any charisma, this says a lot aabout Trudeau's current image IMO. Obviously I am happy it's a minority and libs>tories, but I believe the Liberal party needs to get rid of Trudeau if they want my respect. Until that's done, I'll keep exclusively being a Bloc and NDP supporter. Speaking of NDP I am sadened that they lost so many seats this election. The more I listened to debates and read about the current state of the NDP the more I became a fan of Singh. He's just a geniunely nice dude who wants concrete change and apeard to want to create a larger contrast between his party and the others in how they do politics. I am also curious if Blanchet will be able to push his environemental plan with the help of the NDP and Greens, as it is in my books the most realistic and lines up with the other party's environemental plans, especially considering that a recent discovery in CO2 removal could lower the cost of extraction to under 30$ which is the carbon tax proposed by Blanchet, among other things.
  5. I am getting the same issue as of the 22 of october on desktop. I had to install an adblock to even open up a topic.
  6. I have a few IRL sources who can help with a lot of the programming part and will definitely ask a lot of those general questions to them directly. I will use this thread mostly for specifics in getting advice in game design and artistic guidance. My IRL sources have all recommended Unity over Unreal since C++ requires a lot more parameters that can be overwhelming for beginners. I know that making it top down could be harder but it’s definitely possible.
  7. Heya everyone! This is my last year of high-school in Quebec and I have to do a large scale project on a passion of mine. I chose to try my hand at learning C# and start making a tile based strategy game à la Fire Emblem. Because of my lack of experience in programing in general, I do not believe I will have functional AI comportements for the deadline date, but I want to try and take it further after and continue to work on it in my free time. The other aspect that I will have to work on is spriting and creating tiles in 16x16 pixel art. Now I know there is quite a lot of knowledgable individuals on this site about the aspects I have mentioned and wondered if anyone had tips for any of them. I really wish to make something of this and anything would help.
  8. huh. Thatès interseting. Here in Quebec the provincial liberal party is an actual right wing liberalist party, but the votes do line up with the federal libs. Although it might more be related to the fact that the PLQ is the only somewhat Pro-Anglo party.
  9. So what did everyone think of the English debate? IMO Bernier acted like his usual dufus self in the beginning, then became a background object for most of the second part. May seemed like the only truly civil person on stage and performed rather well. Trudeau didn’t suffer any k.O. Punches which made him a winner as current prime minister. Singh just appeared as a genuine nice guy that could be your next door neighbor. Sheer got beat pretty hard, especially when Trudeau said: Mr. Bernier’s role tonight is to show us what Sheer thinks in secret. And Blanchet’s poor English really hampered his performance, although what he did say was pretty good. All in all the worst in this debate were the biased moderators. When they presented the part about law 21, they downright said that Singh was a coward or « lacked courage » since he said it wasn’t the federal’s role to oppose the court’s decision. They also said the divisive and discriminatory bill 21, when It’s only divisive outside Quebec, since Quebec considers it a necessary form of discrimination, although it even being discriminatory is debatable.
  10. Yeah, to me, and probably a lot of separatists, independence is what we see as our only option, because of how the federal treats us. I would much rather stay and benefit from all the advantages that the redistribution of definitely not Alberta’s extra revenue from richer province. The thing is that right now all the partys don’t even want to recognize our rights.
  11. To be fair a large part of my stance on this issue probably stems from being strongly anti-clerical myself, but I truly believe that people in a position of authority should not display their religious beliefs. In my opinion they have the duty to show total neutrality, and to me, showing religious signs is not what I would call total neutrality. It is my stance, and I do recognize it is bias, but it is what it is. And I should add that I completely understand the other side of the argument, I understand why people believe it is a violation of free speech, I just believe it is a necessary one.
  12. I agree that my perception of the NPD as it stands is based on Mulclair’s time, and that from the look of things Singh has been mostly a detriment to the party and especially it’s provincial branches, but I’ll keep faith that the NPD will rebuild itself by going back to what made them a great option. And yes as I said earlier we need to accept that, for now, Alberta’s petroleum industry is extremely important to our economy and putting the axe in it now is suicide. What I believe should be done, after reflecting on this for the entire day, is continuing to match our petroleum production with the demand, while investing the profit obtained from the sale of that petroleum into durable development in other field. My line of thought is that Russia and Saudi-Arabia have the ability to double their production at anytime they want, so if we were to back out of the competition, they would be the ones to profit from it and the world would still be as polluted, we only would have the illusion that we did something “good”. As much as I hate having Oil exploitation in Canada the demand isn’t going away anytime soon and it’s MUCH better if the money from that petroleum goes into our economy instead of fueling the repressive government of Putin or MBS. We, as a society, depend way too much on petroleum and that’s what need to change, then the law of supply demand will fix things by itself. As for libertarianism I believe it is, currently, unviable for two reasons. The first is that people are not disciplined enough when it comes to consommation, just take a look at the US. As long as people continue creating a demand that shouldn’t exist, companies need to be kept in check by a strong government. The second is that we absolutely need to steer away from the iceberg that is climate change, again if we let companies do their things, we’ll see a lot more like the Koch industries sprouting up and accelerating warming tenfold if it turns a profit. Once those issues are resolved, my only concern is the same as with communism, will human nature make it fail any way?
  13. Yeah I am aware of every party’s opinion on bill 21 as it is something I care about. Everyone except Trudeau basically said that if the Supreme Court doesn’t rule it as unconstitutional they won’t do anything further, the only difference is that Singh said that he “obviously didn’t agree with it” but showed great integrity by saying he would respect the decision of the court. As for petrol and oil sand it’s not so much about CO2 emissions, but more about the damage it does to our forests and land as well as the agressive tactics the government employs when building pipelines. I would much rather Canada go for a Nuclear based energy (which we could do) economy than petroleum. Also, I believe we need to set an exemple to other country that switching out of a fossil fuel economy is viable long term, as it is one of the main worries that prevent a lot of right wingers from supporting major environmental action. Obviously a day will come when we’ll run out of petroleum and that day must not be a fatal blow to our economy. I don’t believe in an immediate stop to petroleum exploitation, unlike certain ideologists, it obviously is very profitable and gives thousands of Albertans solid jobs, but we need to reduce it just a little every year to make sure we can keep a functional economy 50 years in the future. Also it’s interesting to see people outside the province understand and sympathize with the nationalist movement.
  14. Yes, as I said at the beginning I didn’t mention the PPC because it doesn’t have enough traction yet with a possibility of winning only one seat. I agree that most of our immigration policies are a train wreck and we need reforming there. The thing with immigration is that we need the balance between getting main-d’Œuvre which is lacking more and more because people are getting old and birth rates are low, and also having immigrants who will integrate quickly. That’s why, although I am very leftist myself, I do agree with certain immigration policies of more right wing parties that encourage immigrants needing to learn the main language of the province they wish to immigrate to (and for refugees, since they don’t always have the possibility to learn a new language, I believe we need to make drastically better integration programs). I believe that the future of this country lies with immigrants and it is up to them to become the next generation of Canadians. But I still have a few major problems with Bernier. First I really dislike his provocative, un exemplary, attitude and as long as he continues to act like an immature teenager I can’t support him, although I do agree he deserves a place on the debate, no matter Singh’s opinion, it’s a question of free speech and not censoring different opinions, even those we don’t agree with at all. Second, his opinion on climate change is dangerous and denying clear scientific evidence is a slippery slope. And third his variant of populism seems unstable, letting any deputy inscribe their on law idea to the party’s program could quickly cause in-party division, but only time will tell for this. As for the NPD I understand that this isn’t Mulclair’s party anymore, the one that got 45 seats in Quebec, but Singh did say that he would at least respect Quebec’s decision making and officially recognizes Quebec as different entity to Canada, which is already better than both the Libs and the Tories. My obvious problem with the NPD really is the typical problems linked to left populism, telling people what they want to hear while not explaining properly how they’ll achieve their goals while respecting the limits of our economy and the bonus that yeah his breed of left populism is opposed to divisive opinions in general which is really dumb and a dysfunctional way to see politics since it’s always divisive. Also, Fuck the name Trudeau in general, I don’t think I have to explain to you why this name is considered as a traitor’s name to us nationalists.
